Mumbai Police Joint Commissioner Says It Has Not Completed Investigation Of Scandal
Published July 30, 2013
'ICB SHOULD WAIT': The PTI also reported the Indian Cricket Board on Monday made it clear it "does not give much importance to the verdict and would rather wait for the police probe to get over." India Sports Secretary P.K. Deb said, "The BCCI might have cleared them, but I think the Indian Cricket Board should wait for the police probe to get over" (PTI, 7/29). In a separate article, the PTI reported "cricketer-turned-politician Kirti Azad," training his guns at the BCCI "for handing out clean chits in the IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal," on Monday asked whether "the Indian cricket board considers itself above the law." Azad: "I don’t blame (BCCI acting chief) Jagmohan Dalmiya or Srinivasan for this. The politicians are hell bent on making BCCI the next Indian Olympic Association. We have seen what happened to IOA due to political interference and now the same is happening with BCCI. While the Mumbai police and the Delhi police are investigating the case, the BCCI panel has given them a clean chit. Is BCCI above the law and constitution of the country?" (PTI, 7/29).
